German shepherd, Rumor, wins Best In Show

Rumor, named after the Adele song "Rumor Has It", fell short a year ago to German shorthaired pointer C.J. despite being favored to win. She topped Lucy the borzoi, second overall at Westminster a year ago, and Gia the greyhound, champ of the National Dog Show televised last Thanksgiving Day.

Another East Longmeadow pup made an appearance at the 2017 Westminster Dog Show being held in New York City.

Only two days after Adele was the big victor at the Grammys, a dog named after her hit song "Rumor Has It" had the crowd at New York City's Madison Square Garden roaring in approval of her win. Seeing a pet go from the couch to this top prize, heck, that's a dog world Hail Mary.

Other winners include Adrian the Irish setter who was named Reserve Best in Show and won the sporting group, Devlin the boxer who won the working group, and Tanner the Norwich terrier who won the terrier group.

An Irish setter finished second this year.

After winning, Boyles told a television interviewer that "there are puppies in the future" for the champ.




"The German shepherd standard talks about quality and nobility", judge Thomas Bradley III said.

Rumor's owner, Kent Boyles, is from Maumee, Ohio. We're spending the day with Rumor to find out!

The German Shepherd was named after the British singer's hit song "Rumor Has It".

Almost 2,800 dogs across 202 breeds and varieties were entered.

Boyles said he and his family will drive back to Wisconsin with Rumor, where she will be retired from shows.

Rumor was one of seven dogs to advance to the Best in Show competition.
